Bengals, Eagles ride high;  Bills, cowboys bow out

Previous ranking: #5

You couldn’t ask for a better result. The Giants’ 38-7 destruction on Saturday night brought down the curtain on a rival in embarrassing fashion while restoring the NFC’s No. 1 seed’s image as a swaggering juggernaut not to be laughed at. . Going into the weekend, it was legitimately unclear which version of Philly we’d see in the divisional round after a rocky end to the season, with health questions lingering around key stars. But quarterback Jalen Hurts looked like an MVP again, and Lane Johnson was leading an offensive line that dug holes en route to 268 rushing yards. The idea of ​​the Eagles being vulnerable now seems, well… absurd. “You saw it, forgive my language,” left tackle Jordan Mailata said, according to The Athletic. “It’s just that juice, man. That loot. Jalen’s got a ton of loot, so he’s always showing it on the pitch. And his football IQ, just making plays there. And having the same continuity on the O line, that’s a fact – a key stat for winning games. … So it helps when you get your star players back, that’s for sure.”
